CSU faculty pledge

CSU FACULTY IN SUPPORT OF CLIMATE CHANGE ACTION

We, the undersigned faculty at Colorado State University, represent researchers across diverse disciplines who focus on the social and scientific challenges of global climate change and who are concerned about how these changes will affect us all.

We are part of the overwhelming consensus that has provided the scientific evidence for and affirms the seriousness of human-caused climate change.  We stand for scientific research, reasoned inquiry, and verifiable facts.  Our scholarship, like that of scientists worldwide, points to the negative current and future changes to our climate – with consequences such as more damaging wildfires, extreme events like droughts and floods, sea level rise - and the impacts of climate change on society, flora and fauna, health and critical processes that support human well-being and the human enterprise.

We are part of collaborative efforts to discover and implement technical, socio-economic, cultural, and political solutions to climate change.

We are also educators who help students understand this complex issue, appreciate the competing values and perspectives that shape public discourse around it, and prepare them to meet this emerging challenge.

As employees of a public land-grant institution, we affirm our responsibility to deploy our knowledge in service of society, in Colorado and beyond.  We will continue to work with diverse people and cultures and to collaborate with university leaders; local, state, and federal elected officials; faith communities and civic organizations; and business leaders – many of whom are already engaged in raising awareness and developing innovative strategies for reducing and adapting to climate change.
